Serene In Green

Good afternoon all and hope you have a lovely sunny day as we've had on the South coast. I actually managed to eat lunch in my sun lounge as it was so warm.
A quick post today with my entry for this week's Play Date Cafe challenge which is a colour splash - black and white with a splash of whatever you fancy this time.

As you can see, I decided on green for my simple card. I made a background panel with white card embossed with the gorgeous Craft Concepts Wings butterfly folder and adhered this to a white ribbed card  with a small piece of green paper trimmed with the Martha Stewart Arch Lattice border punch peeping out.
I stamped the grasses from the My Paper World set (Flowers and Butterflies I think) in black and cut this out with a Nestabilities scalloped circle doiley . I die cut a further one from green paper and stuck them together so that the circles overlapped. I stamped the butterflies from the same set and coloured them with a Meadow Green Promarker. The stamp set is from the Craft Barn.
I made a central partial border with a strip of green card and a piece of white punched with the Martha Stewart Linked Trim double edge punch (my new toy and I love it!). I finished off with some green pearls.

Thanks for looking,
Fliss xx
